She was born in Baltimore, Maryland on September 18, 1971, to Adrienne Bandfield-Jones, a nurse, and Rosbol Pinkett Jr, who ran a construction company. Adrienne had Jada when she was still in high school, and the couple married but quickly soon after, leaving Adrienne to raise Jada with just the help of her mother, Marion Martin Banfield. Jada’s grandmother quickly noticed Jada’s aptitude for performing, and enrolled her in piano and dance lessons. She attended the Baltimore School for the Arts where she majored in dance and theater. Jada graduated in 1989. While at this school, one of Jada’s classmates was future rap star Tupac Shakur. The two would become lifelong friends until his tragic death.
Jada met her future husband, superstar actor Will Smith, while visiting the set of his ’90s sitcom “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air”. Jada auditioned for the role of his character’s girlfriend, Lisa Wilkes. The role went to Nia Long instead, as Jada was considered “too short” to play it. Will and Jada began dating in 1995 (after he separated from Sheree Fletcher–Will had apparently grown an attraction to Jada before this but never acted on it) and were married in 1997. Today Will and Jada have two children, Jaden Smith and Willow Smith, both of whom have developed successful careers in the entertainment industry. Jada is also the stepmother to Trey Smith, who is Will’s son from a former marriage. In July 2019, Jada admitted to being in a romantic relationship with singer August Alsina while she and Will were separated in 2016.
